Does a Nice Garden Add Value to a Home?

Brits take pride in having a beautiful garden, whether it is to show off to friends and family or purely for their own pleasure; having a unique garden adds character and beauty to a home.

This is why it comes as no shock to learn that Britain invests £80billion on their gardens, but the main question is, is this money well spent?

A survey conducted by Home Retail Group found that two fifths of Britons would not live in a home that does not have a sufficient garden. The study also stated that one in seven homeowners invested money into their home and the return of value on their house was more than expected.

The fact which may surprise you, is that a well-kept and appealing garden can actually add 20 per cent to the value of your home.

If you want to increase the value of your home, here’s how you can make your garden more appealing to buyers.

  • Plants and flowers add colour, character and beauty to your garden.
  • Lighting and furniture turns your outside area into a relaxing place where you are able to escape. Homebuyers will picture themselves enjoying being outside on a warm and sunny day instead of stuck inside the house.
  • Seclusion from the outside world also allows your garden to appeal to more viewers. Having a private garden where you are not distracted could influence more offers for your property. In most areas, you are allowed to plant a two metre fence without needing an additional permit.
  • Lastly, artificial grass allows you to have a perfect length, well-kept and maintained garden all year long. When you have a sudden visitor, or you only have an hour to get your home ready for a viewing, you will no longer need to worry about mowing your lawn. Artificial grass comes in different styles, colours and textures so you are able to choose the perfect grass for your garden.
